The oil businessman inheritor John Gilbert Getty has passed away at a luxurious San Antonio hotel room on Nov. 20.
The 52-year-old was sitting in an “Indian-style pose” at the Hotel Emma with his mouth and eyes wide open.
A hotel staffer came to check on him at around noon when he made the grisly discovery. He was found cold to the touch, unresponsive with his laptop in front of him.
The heir to the billions of dollars was “upstairs lying back on some pillows from an Indian style sitting position on his bed,” San Antonio Police Department reported.
“He had his glasses in his left hand, eyes were open, mouth was open.”
No signs of foul play were discovered at the scene as everything seemed “neat and orderly.”
The Getty family released a statement confirming the news: “With a heavy heart, Gordon Getty announces the death of his son, John Gilbert Getty.”
“John leaves behind his daughter, Ivy Getty, whom he loved beyond measure, and his brothers Peter and Billy. His brother Andrew predeceased John. His mother, Ann Gilbert Getty, passed this September.”
